It’s easy to think of brettanomyces as a bad guy. This wild yeast is infamous for devastating batches of beer and wine. With our new Saison de Brettaville, we aim to show that brett’s not all bad. We’ve highlighted the best characteristics of this much maligned yeast and the astounding range of tropical fruit flavors and pleasant, earthy funk it contributes to sour beers and saisons.
We began with our classic Saison Dolores and added twelve different strains of brettanomyces, capturing a snapshot of each strain’s best flavors and aromas, then aged this new brew in white wine barrels. Finally it was finished off with a delicate dry hopping of Hallertau Blanc, Mandarina, and Mosaic.
The result is a farmhouse ale that is more funky than sour, with nuance that only brett can create. Serve with soft, creamy cheeses or as a tangy counterpoint to rich charcuterie.
de Brettaville Series
Our Farm to Barrel beers focus on the eons-old tradition of aging beers in oak barrels. Our de Brettaville saisons are an ode to the magical properties of wild brettanomyces yeast. We start by brewing a bright and aromatic farmhouse ale with a blend of twelve “brett” yeast strains. After a vigorous primary fermentation, the beer is racked into white wine barrels to mature. In cask, the beer takes on the complex flavors of the barrels and the brettanomyces yeast create an exotic melange of earthy funk and tropical fruit flavors. This wild ale is alive in the bottle and will continue to mature for years.
